After receiving NUCCA Chiropractic care, some patients have shared with us that they noticed a drop in their blood pressure. The misalignment in the upper neck can interfere with critical nerve messages that can cause blood vessels to constrict and therefore, increase blood pressure. Correcting the misalignment can allow the pressure to decrease. Here is a story from one of our patients:
I initially began NUCCA treatment because I had read of success in lowering blood pressure. Medications had been devastating for me and I sought an alternative. At age 64, I had a range of “body issues” I had learned to live with—pains and stiffness, respiratory allergies, and other complications, etc.
The first thing I noticed after coming to The Besso Clinic, was my breathing became easier, less constricted. I had been a shallow breather since a fall from a horse in 1967!!! As May and June came along I had braced myself for my annual long months of allergy related sicknesses. I would get headaches, ear pain, sore throat, sinus infections/congestion, lung congestion/chronic bronchitis. It never came this year! The relief from this experience with NUCCA has been wonderful.
Then, in June, I began to see better blood pressure readings. I had stopped checking it for months. The numbers were alarming, sometimes going as high as 180/100. My MD once said if I could get to 150/90 or lower, he would be satisfied. I remember the day the monitor read 149/89. I called my husband to come look. This is the most wonderful relief for me. The fears of a future disability are now fading from my thoughts and I have new hope for a healthier future. I am very grateful for the care and the healing I have found here at The Besso Clinic.
This gentle and innovative chiropractic care seems to free the body to do its own self-healing and adjusting. I wish everyone could try this treatment!!!

For those of you that missed last months’ “Wellness Series,” Here are some highlights:
Note: The series covered four hours of material so these sound bites, though intriguing, are just a fraction of what you would learn attending the entire series.
Healthy fat such as that found in raw nuts, avocados, olives, egg yolks, meats and coconut oil is the preferred fuel of the body and has profound health benefits. 50-70% of your diet should consist of healthy fat. Cholesterol is vital to your health and no life form can live without it. You should eat as much as your food raw as possible, failing to do so leads to malnutrition, digestive problems and obesity.
You will never be optimally healthy unless you’re consistently exercising. Frequency, length of time and the intensity of your exercise sessions needs to be modified constantly because too much is bad for you. Anaerobic and strength training exercise are the two best types of exercise for burning fat and keeping it off. Acceleration training is the best for the immobile. Walking or running backwards is better for you than forwards.
85% or more of all diseases have an emotional element. The study of epigenetics is showing us that we can change the expression of our genes. The placebo effect is so powerful it can give you the same outcomes as if you had received arthroscopic knee surgery. You should almost never take an antidepressant for clinical depression, they work no better than a sugar pill. Too much or too little sleep accelerates tumor growth and can cause type II diabetes.
Only 15% of standard medical procedures have been proven scientifically. This is why you don’t want to go to a medical doctor for chronic conditions. One MD says, “All disease results from the disruption of the flow of intelligence.” We discussed three hypothesis for the “cause” of disruption to the flow of intelligence. I presented the most impressive studies performed to date on the efficacy and safety of upper cervical specific care.
The purpose of the “Wellness Series” is not only to educate our patients about this vital information, but be able to share it with the individuals that have not yet experienced the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and being under upper cervical care. If you belong to a club, church or company that invites guest speakers, or would be willing to invite a guest speaker to share this series, or a portion of it, with the group, contact Sarah here at the office so our community can benefit from knowing what the four pillars of health and wellness are and begin to implement them in their lives.
As you know, Dr. Besso and I run a busy practice. We have specific objectives we want to accomplish on each one of your visits to us. Our primary objective is to assess whether or not you’re subluxated. If you are subluxated, we correct it, and then assess to make sure the correction is complete. There are reasons why we focus so intensely on this, but our focus doesn’t negate the other aspects of health and wellness. We are educated and qualified to teach you on so much more, and know it would be beneficial to you if we did! So starting Thursday, January 10, 2013 from 6:30-7:30 we are offering a series of lectures focused on the four pillars of health. Here’s a little of what you can expect at each lecture:
Folks, this is serious stuff that we just can’t give due respect to in a regular office visit. In fact, I’ve had a heck of a time taking these very broad topics and constructing them into 45 minute power point presentations that I feel will give you the most important information you need to achieve optimal health and wellness. But I think I have managed to create a really great series packed with great info. So bring a friend and your questions to the “Wellness Series”, it may just transform your life!
Registration: Call 330.689.1234 to register by January 7th , space is limited!
Where: The Besso Clinic of Chiropractic, 4015 Darrow Rd. Suite A, Stow, OH 44224
Cost: $40 for the series- Bring a Friend and both registrations are FREE!
On November 5th, 2012 Dr. Geoffrey Besso was interviewed on WKYC Channel 3′s “Live on Lakeside” show. They invited him to share on the benefits of his specific NUCCA chiropractic technique, specifically in the area of headaches. In the past 7 years Dr. Besso has used this gentle and specific technique to help many patients find relief from chronic headaches. Patients are always happy to find a solution to the pain they experience on a daily basis, pain that they often think they just have to “live with”. Take a minute to watch the video, and give us a call at 330.689.1234 if you would like us to sit down with you to discuss finding relief from your headaches.
Many patients come to Besso Clinic hopeful, and yet skeptical. They have suffered for years with pain: debilitating pain that is keeping them from being active with their kids or grandkids, from gardening or golf, or simply from getting a good night’s sleep. Many people are looking desperately for a solution, but most of those solutions come with side effects, drugs, or invasive surgery. Yet they walk through our doors, daring to be hopeful. We get excited to be a part of the solution, to meet them and help them walk the road to relief- not just from pain, but to an increased level of wellness in their entire body. This is Maggie C’s story. Call us at 330-689-1234 to being your story.
I came to the Besso Clinic of Chiropractic looking for relief from my monthly migraines, allergies, and sinus problems. I also would wake up with neck pain, and a headache. I have suffered with these problems for most of my life.
I tried other chiropractors as well as allergist who just gave me medication. I took the medication and still found no relief, plus I didn’t want to be on medication for the rest of my life.
It’s been a year, and I have had one migraine. I just can’t believe it! My neck pain is better, my allergies are less, and I don’t wake up with a headache. The NUCCA procedure is very gentle, and the Drs. are great when it comes to doing what’s best for each patient. The staff here is amazing; everyone is so welcoming and supportive.
The hardest part for me was the waiting for the results, being patient was difficult at first, but it was totally worth the long-term results. I am so happy the Besso Clinic helped me feel better, and made me able to do things I enjoy doing without pain or taking medication to do so.

The holidays are here and everyone is gearing up for the most stressful time of the year. Well … guess what? Years end, or anytime of the year for that matter, doesn’t have to be stressful. If you believe that most health problems are caused and/or aggravated by stress, you’re not alone. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has said that 86% of all disease processes are caused by our thoughts! Much of the stress we experience in life is due to our negative thoughts. With that said, I’d like to share with you the five most important elements I’ve found for reducing the effects of stress:
I could have mentioned many other strategies to reduce the effects of stress in our lives, but since it is a very personal state of being, you’ll need to experiment a little. I hope I’ve given you some useful parameters to work within in finding what works best for you. Happy Holidays!
